The times of night which is equal to Laylatul Qadr

The times of night which is equal to Laylatul Qadr

Discourse notes: 02/08/13

A part of Laylatul Qadr is there throughout the year. Indeed the night of Qadr in Ramadan is supreme but Allah has kept a part of it for the reminder of the rest of the year. He is not miserly in forgiveness. A person who wants to seek Allah and ask of him can do so.
There are three times in the night which is known as a small Laylatul Qadr
1) beginning: post magrib /6 rakats of nawafils Salatul Awabeen
“Whoever prays six rakats after magrib (salahtul Awabeen) and does not speak of evil in between them will have the reward of 12 years of worship!”
1st two unit of prayer: tawbah
2nd two units of prayer: shukr
3rd two units of prayer: hajat
Total: 6

2) middle: post esha prayers/ 4 rakats of prayer (nawafil) with one Salam like the sunnah of Asr
“Abdullah ibn Maqsood (RA) reported whoever prays 4 rakats after esha without breaking inbetween the Salat. This salat will be equal to praying in Laylatul Qadr (sahih Hadith)
Aisha (RA) reported:
“Whoever will pray esha with jamat then prays 4 rakats of nafil will receive the reward of praying in the night of Qadr”. (Weak Hadith)

3) end: the prime of Laylatul Qadr is in the last part of the night (tahadjudd)/ 8 rakats of prayer.

A person who will do prayers at these times after the obligatory ones will be fortunate enough to have had the small parts of Laylatul Qadr. When the supreme Laylatul Qadr will come in the auspicious month of Ramadan, it will seek out the one who kept worshipful nights at the times of small Laylatul Qadr.

Jabir (RA) reported:
“Certainly there is a part of the night in which if a person asks Allah for the good of the world or the hereafter Allah will surely grant it”. (Hadith)

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.
